Islamabad, Jan 18: Making a statement which would invite a strong reaction from India, Pakistan on Monday, Jan 18, accused India of 'unprovoked' border fire.

The statement comes amid the increased incidents of cross-border firing along the international Indo-Pak border.

Speaking on the latest incident which took place on Sunday, Jan 17 night, Pakistani paramilitary force spokesman said, Indian forces using automatic weapons opened 'unprovoked firing' on Pakistani positions in the Sialkot area, north of the city Lahore.

"Our soldiers strongly retaliated and forced them to stop firing," Rangers spokesman Nadeem Raza said, adding, "We have decided to forcefully respond if they resort to firing again."

Over the past few days both the countries have reported firing along the border, which accounts to ceasefire violation.

Earlier, an Indian soldier was killed in firing across Line of Control, which separates the two sides in the disputed Kashmir region.
